Brains Development / Brain writing on/off relay

I could use some help writing a brain.

On when Z moves down and off when it moves up.

General Mach Discussion / Slave motor problem
« on: January 10, 2018, 07:08:55 PM »
Hello Groove-Guys (get it?),
I have a 4 axis machine with B as a slave to X.
The machine jogs correctly but when running a program the B no longer will run in tandem.
I've replaced the PC so that isn't it.
It ran fine before and jogs so I'd guess it's not a break-out board.
Any ideas would help.

At that time there were extra buttons and images available for download.
I would appreciate any help in locating these.

General Mach Discussion / Lazycam/ Cams
« on: April 17, 2017, 04:43:59 PM »
Hi folks,
A little off subject.
I need to drill 360,000 holes in a 13"x180" flat sheet metal part.
Lazycam does about 1/200th of this and any more freezes up the PC.
I use Lazycam for most everything so
I'm not sure of other CAMs.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

General Mach Discussion / USB to 25 pin break out board
« on: March 20, 2017, 11:39:30 AM »
The PC has a USB port.
The machine controller has a 25 pin break-out board  (C10).
Is it possible to run mach3 using a simple USB to 25pin lp1 cable?
I'm guessing there is more to it.
